Samsung Galaxy Note 4 fails the Bendgate Test

Samsung has tried to exploit the iPhone 6 Bendgate by releasing its own bending tests and poking fun at its rival; perhaps it will have to rethink that strategy now. The “bendgate” fiasco took another turn recently, But now the Korean company finds itself in a difficult situation, wherein contrary to its own claims, the Galaxy Note 4 has failed the bend test. Furthermore, unlike Apple’s phablet, Note 4 doesn’t get any noticeable dent mark, and is surprisingly good at regaining back to its original state, well almost. It remains to be seen how the Galaxy Note 4, which is yet to ship in a vast majority of regions fares in normal uses. The only good thing to come out of the demonstration from Samsung is that its flagship palette isn’t as binding as the iPhone 6 Plus. Samsung enjoyed watching its rival’s iPhone 6 Plus bend, and even took numerous jabs at it. The purpose of the tests, is to put the devices in intense conditions to see how they hold up over time. Bendgate continues, but this time, it’s not the iPhone 6 Plus at the center of the controversy.

After receiving complaints from Apple fans that testing only the iPhone 6 Plus was unfair, he took on the Note 3 and Note 4. In some circumstances, we have to push the boundaries because you are going to be the owner of the device for two years, maybe more, and it’s a significant investment.” It’s not a matter of manufacturers putting more money into durability; it’s because everyone’s perception of what makes a durable phone is different. “But it’s nowhere near as severe [as the iPhone 6 Plus],” While one might argue that every phone can bend — which is likely true with a certain amount of applied pressure — the question is how easily and how often it will do so. Samsung is said to be planning on launching its flagship phablet in India on October 14. So far we are yet to hear any consumer complaint about the bending issue of Note 4.
